About The Boathouse...

The Boathouse offers great facilities and a truly unique location for groups of up to 60 people, and we look forward to working with you to ensure your meeting or event runs smoothly.

The Boathouse Meeting & Event Room is provided by The Crown Estate, owners of Rushden Lakes, first & foremost to be made available to community groups, often at prices well below typical hire rates for a facility of this type.  The room is of course also available for private and corporate hire at standard rates.

The Boathouse is managed on behalf of The Crown Estate by The River Nene Canoe Hire Co. Ltd (trading as “Canoe2” and “The Boathouse Meeting Room”), a local canoe hire & paddle activity company who share this very special “net zero energy” building.
